(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

What formula or formulas are used to calculate the distance traveled by the robot given the radius of its wheel/tire (R) and the degrees through which the motors rotated (d)? Use n to represent the number of rotations made by the motors. Show all steps and formula(s) required.

2. Relevant equations

s= distance traveled

C=2pi

3. The attempt at a solution

I used the equation to figure out that circumference multiplied by the number of rotations is equal to the distance traveled but I don't know where degrees fits into the formula.

s=C x ρ∶where ρ is the number of rotations
